Famille Lesgourgues

Bordeaux, France

Founded in 1974, the Famille Lesgourgues company has evolved into a prominent player in the global production and distribution of premium wines and spirits. Led by the third generation of the Lesgourgues family, following Maurice and Jean-Jacques Lesgourgues, the company upholds the values of Tradition, Innovation, and Beauty in everything it does. As a testament to its excellence, Famille Lesgourgues is a proud member of the esteemed Vignobles & Signatures club, which consists of 17 of France’s most exceptional vintners and distillers.

Presently, the Famille Lesgourgues owns four properties. All four properties are located in Bordeaux and the South West of France, renowned for their viticultural heritage and exceptional terroir. One of the crown jewels of Famille Lesgourgues is Château de Laubade, an Armagnac estate that has become a benchmark within the appellation since its acquisition in 1974. The Lesgourgues Family’s commitment to preserving tradition and quality is evident in the renowned Armagnacs produced at Château de Laubade.

Château Haut Selve is another remarkable property, born out of Jean-Jacques Lesgourgues’ ambitious vision to create a 112-acre vineyard from scratch. Built upon the land of a prestigious 19th-century property where vines once thrived, Château Haut Selve showcases the Lesgourgues family’s dedication to innovation and the pursuit of winemaking excellence. Located in the heart of the Graves Appellation, Château Le Bonnat tells a story of heritage and transformation. Originally operated by Château Fieuzal, the Lesgourgues Family acquired the property in 1997, infusing it with their passion and expertise to elevate its wines to new heights.

Steeped in history and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Château Loumelat resides in the captivating town of Blaye. This unique location, where art and history intertwine, reflects the Lesgourgues family’s appreciation for beauty and their commitment to preserving cultural treasures.Venturing into the Haut Béarn region, the Lesgourgues family oversees Château Peyros in the Madiran vineyards. Situated in the heart of the Vic Bilh, this region carries the essence of the “old country.” The Lesgourgues Family’s dedication to terroir and tradition is showcased in the exceptional wines crafted at Château Peyros.

Beyond their own properties, Famille Lesgourgues has established Maison Léda, an independent family-owned company specializing in the distribution of premium French wines and spirits. Founded in 1982, Maison Léda initially focused on the distribution of the family’s Armagnacs and wines. Today, under the leadership of Arnaud and Denis Lesgourgues, the third generation, Maison Léda has expanded its portfolio to include a curated selection of wines and spirits from independent French producers renowned for their savoir-faire and quality.

In 1982, Baron Francois Ltd, an affiliate of Famille Lesgourgues, was founded by M. Adrien Baron. Since the Lesgourgues family’s takeover in 2000, Baron Francois Ltd has been an integral part of the Famille Lesgourgues group. Based in lower Manhattan’s Wall Street, the company imports and distributes a meticulously chosen range of fine wines and craft spirits, predominantly from France, Europe, and the USA. With a focus on high-quality service and long-term partnerships, Baron Francois Ltd supports its customers in their retailing endeavors, primarily in the North-East US States.

Guided by the value of Beauty, the family shares this commitment with their ecosystem, including employees, customers, suppliers, and partners. The marriage of art and wine or armagnac echoes their philosophy of craftsmanship, aesthetics, and the pursuit of beauty in all aspects of life.

The Famille Lesgourgues continues to shape the world of wines and spirits, honoring tradition, embracing innovation, and celebrating the timeless allure of beauty.
